A Gram-stain negative, oxidase- and catalase- positive, motile, aerobic, non-pigmented spirillum, designated CPA1T, was isolated from the surface-sterilized tissues of a halophyte, Halimione portulacoides, collected from a salt marsh in Aveiro, Portugal. The isolate was mesophilic, facultatively alkaliphilic and halophilic, and grew between 18 and 42.5 °C (optimum 30 °C), from pH 5.0 to 11.5 (optimum 7.0-7.5), from 0.5 to 5 % NaCl (w/v, optimum 2 %). Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence… 
Saccharospirillum alexandrii sp. nov., isolated from the toxigenic marine dinoflagellate Alexandrium catenella LZT09.
A Gram-stain-negative, strictly aerobic, non-motile and non-pigmented spirillum, designated strain LZ-5T, was isolated from cultures of the paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) toxin-producing marine
Saccharospirillum mangrovi sp. nov., a bacterium isolated from mangrove sediment.
Results of DNA-DNA hybridization analysis revealed that strain HK-33T shared 36.3±1.7 % DNA relatedness with S. correiae CPA1T, and on the basis of its phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and genotypic characteristics, it is considered to represent a novel species in the genus Saccharospirillum.

A novel haloalkaliphilic bacterium was isolated from the decaying biomass of a laboratory culture of cyanobacterium Geitlerinema species and is proposed to be a representative of a novel genus and a novel species, Natronospirillum operosum gen. nov.
Complete Genome Sequence of Saccharospirillum mangrovi HK-33T Sheds Light on the Ecological Role of a Bacterium in Mangrove Sediment Environment
Evidence about carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, and sulfur metabolic patterns of S. mangrovi HK-33T is provided and understandings about ecological roles of this bacterium in the mangrove sediment environment are broadened.
Isolation and characterization of a novel 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate (ACC) deaminase producing plant growth promoting marine Gammaproteobacteria from crops grown in brackish environments. Proposal for Pokkaliibacter plantistimulans gen. nov., sp. nov., Balneatrichaceae fam. nov. in the order
Three novel strains isolated as part of an ongoing study on 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate deaminase expressing rhizobacteria from crops cultivated in saline affected coastal agro-ecosystems of Kerala, India were positive for many properties that are beneficial to plant growth and reveals gene features for higher adaptation to plant-associated environments.
Bacterial Endophytes from Halophytes: How Do They Help Plants to Alleviate Salt Stress?
In this chapter, the main genera of endophytes isolated from halophytes, the presence of plant growth-promoting properties in these endophyts, and how they could help to alleviate salt stress in plants are reviewed and discussed.
Saline Soil-based Agriculture by Halotolerant Microorganisms
Nowadays, the agricultural productivity is declining due to the negative effects of climate change, global temperature rise, and increased environmental stresses. Therefore, in order to achieve


Saccharospirillum salsuginis sp. nov., a gammaproteobacterium from a subterranean brine.
The combination of phylogenetic analysis, phenotypic differences, chemotaxonomic properties and DNA-DNA hybridization data supported the view that this strain represents a novel species of the genus Saccharospirillum, for which the name YIM-Y25(T) is proposed.
Saccharospirillum aestuarii sp. nov., isolated from tidal flat sediment, and an emended description of the genus Saccharospirillum.
It is concluded that strain IMCC4453(T), isolated from tidal flat sediment and subjected to a taxonomic study using a polyphasic approach, represents a novel species of the genus Saccharospirillum, for which the name SaccharSpiralillum aestuarii sp.
Saccharospirillum impatiens gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel gamma-Proteobacterium isolated from hypersaline Ekho Lake (East Antarctica).

A group of strains with potent extracellular enzymic activity were isolated from the surfaces of the chain-forming sea-ice diatom Melosira and from an unidentified macrophyte collected from the Eastern Antarctic coastal zone and it was recognized that the species Cytophaga uliginosa possessed 16S rDNA sequences and phenotypic and chemotaxonomic traits similar to those of other Cellulophaga species.
Culturable endophytic bacteria from the salt marsh plant Halimione portulacoides: phylogenetic diversity, functional characterization, and influence of metal(loid) contamination
The results suggest that the endosphere of H. portulacoides represents a diverse bacterial hotspot including putative novel species, and many isolates, particularly those affiliated to Altererythrobacter, Marinilactibacillus, Microbacterium, and Vibrio, tested positive for enzymatic activities and plant growth promoters, exposing H.portulacoide as a source of bacteria and compounds with biotechnological applications.
Introducing EzTaxon-e: a prokaryotic 16S rRNA gene sequence database with phylotypes that represent uncultured species.
It is concluded that the EzTaxon-e database provides a useful taxonomic backbone for the identification of cultured and uncultured prokaryotes and offers a valuable means of communication among microbiologists who routinely encounter taxonomically novel isolates.
The Identification of Fatty Acids in Bacteria
This chapter describes methods thatShould be applied and the care that should be taken to obtain uniform values from fatty acid determination to standardize the conditions of growth as well as those of the gas chromatography.
